Two strangers’ carpool from Los Angeles to Sacramento unravels when they decide to try to extort money from a Department of Motor Vehicles bribery scheme headquartered in Bakersfield.
A blistering dark comedy about the odds of reaching your destination when self-destruction is riding shotgun, “TILT” is the brand new play by Ben Moroski, creator of the hit Hollywood Fringe solo plays “The Wake” (Best Solo Show, HFF 2014) and “This Vicious Minute” (Nominee, Best Solo Show, HFF 2012).
Starring alongside Moroski in “TILT” will be long-time Hollywood Fringe veteran and last year’s Top of the Fringe and Best Solo Show winner Michael Shaw Fisher (“Shakespeare’s Last Night Out”).
“TILT” is directed by Nick Massouh – a director, actor, improviser and a founding company member of the critically acclaimed Impro Theatre – who previously directed both of Ben Moroski’s award-winning solo plays, “This Vicious Minute” and “The Wake.”

“More real than any film…like a needle drawing swampy blood…similar to Mamet and McDonagh with a fresh blast of Americana…raw and aggressive…stuck with me for days. Highly recommended.”
